Sorry, but ironically, one of those so-called "stereotypical" sitcoms, "The Beulah Show" didn't use a laugh track and it aired in the early 1950's. Other 1950's sitcoms without laugh-track include "I Remember Mama" (drama-sitcom), "The Trouble with Father", and of course the much-loved Jewish sitcom "The Goldbergs" (a sitcom with dramtic elements). I'm pretty sure the 1947-1950 sitcom "Mary Kay and Johnny" didn't feature a laugh-track, but I'm not 100% sure (little footage remains).

I bow before you because, darn it, it's YOU! But I have to say that, well, Golly, it's not like I said "Juluia" was the FIRST sitcom to do without a laugh track, right? Oddly enough, Bill Cosby had his first sitcom on NBC at about the same time as "Julia" and HE tried to do it without a laugh track. Thus endeth the sermon, although Wikipedia probably has more to say on the subject. So does Harlan Ellison, now that I brood on the subject. Anyway, you responded to something I wrote; this makes me just a little cool.

Look, I am autistic, so stop expecting me to be able to spell. The Australian education system stopped teaching around Grade 5.
